Recorded lectures on heritage conservation

From: Paul Thomas <paul<-a>
Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2005
Lectures available on DVD

During the course of my teaching in the 2004/5 academic year as a
Sessional Lecturer at Ravensbourne College of Design and
Communication, I used the issues of cultural heritage conservation
as a vehicle for students of Broadcast Content Creation to create a
series of eight short documentaries.

As an introduction to this, lectures by external speakers were
filmed for the students' use. Three of these lectures have been
edited and assembled on DVD which I can now make available to the
wider conservation education community.

The first of these is the ICOMOS-UK Christmas Lecture of
Feb 12, 2004

    "Iraq's Cultural Heritage"
    by Dr Lamia Al-Gailani Werr of the British School of Archaeology
    in Iraq and the Iraqi Reconstruction and Development Council

the second on Jan 21, 2005

    "Conservation and Communities in Post-conflict Situations"
    by Christian Manhart then Program Specialist, Tangible Heritage
    Section, UNESCO is an examination of the role of heritage
    conservation in reconciliation in Afghanistan and Bosnia among

and the third is

    "Opportunities and Obstacles to Conservation in China"
    by Lord Hankey, Executive Chairman of Gilmore Hankey Kirke and
    Vice President of ICOMOS-UK.

Christian's and Donald's lectures were filmed at Ravensbourne where
a Q&A session was also held in one of the TV studios in the
afternoon which offers further interesting insights.

Each of these presentations is approximately 50 minutes long as is
the Q&A session which together offer an international perspective
and a wealth of material which could be used simply for seminar
discussion and/or as the basis of critical written work.

I can distribute these at a nominal charge for my time and the
postage or I would be happy to coordinate the whole at your
institution with my own introductory presentations. If you wish to
make a video record of any presentations for educational purposes
then this can also be arranged.
